i'm gretchen carlson. the flu outbreak is spreading more. how you can protect yourself. >>steve: call him sherrif joe biden. he tells the president forget congress. crack down on guns by executive order. will they really gut the second amendment? >>brian: what would you do? an invisible driver places an order at the drive-thru. >> hello. is someone in there? >> i'm a ghost. thank you. >>brian: "fox & friends" said they did the right thing. i'm a tkpwoefplt -- i'm a ghost. >>gretchen: first we see dogs driving cars a few weeks ago. now we have ghosts driving cars and ordering fast-food restaurants? >>brian: i've got a feeling that is a practical joker as opposed to a dog driving. later on in the show we'll get a trainer show you how to get your dog to drive a lawn mower. >>steve: do you think the after-life is interesting going through the drive-thru window? >>brian: you need a quick break but don't have time to sit down and have somebody take your order because you're a ghost. you drive through and go back to scaring people. >>gretchen: let's begin with a fox news alert. the flu
live right on television after you're done. >> you gave steve part of our studio platform? >>steve: no. you will have to tune in. stay tuned. >> i think i'm going to be here for the three hours. >>steve: you will have to stay tuned to find out what exactly was involved. it did involve this pocket hose right here. >>brian: he's supposed to be on the camera, and he goes to get a pocket hose right in the middle of a segment. what are you? an extra? what are you? an august sillry? -- an auxiliary? >> this is getting more intriguing by the minute. i can hardly wait to hear about that hose. >>steve: it was something that happened on friday that went hardly awry. >> was this at the end of the show? >>steve: no. >> when i was on the treadmill, i was watching part of the show, but i missed this whole hose episode. then all of a sudden you guys froze at 8:40. maybe it was a direct tv satellite thing. you froze for the next 20 minutes. >>brian: it was chilly outside. >> we've got to get to headlines. it's shaping up to be a big week for white house staff announcements. president obama will no
to welcome two experts. terry schmidt and steve clemens. -- gary schmidt and steve clemons. did his nomination surprise you? >guest: it did not. when you began looking at the transition from leon panetta and asking what kind of person who would have in there, someone who would command competency and stature. he seemed an obvious choice. host: news from "the new york times." pointing out to republicans who called him and appeasers based on what he said in a rock. he voted for the rock were but then turned against that conflict. the word appeasers seems to be pretty strong. -- iraq, but then turned aginst that conflict. the word "appeaser" seems to e pretde pretty strong. guest: the most important thing that happened during the war was the search. he voted against the surge. he called the worst mistake since the vietnam. when you're talking about putting somebody as secretary of defense and has such strong views, and wrong views, that is something that will be asking him. host: we're going to share with you some of the statements by senator haggle -- hagel. also, a number of speeches
confirmation. with me now steve clemens, editor at large for "atlantic" and has written things in support of hagel's nomination to the defense department and dan seymour and foreign policy adviser. gentlemen, welcome to you both. i couldn't think of two better people to do this and you both agreed. so, thank you. dan, i want to start with you, but i want to lay out this issue on israel and iran and i want to put up, we put together a few charts. sort of fuel for supporters and opponents when it comes to hagel and iran and israel. voted against iran/libya sanks in 2001 and blocked sanctions bills in 2008. he was in support of key nonproliferation bills having to do with sanctioning iran on nuclear weapons. as for israel, he didn't sign some letters of support of israel in the past. anti-hamas bill and voted for aid for israel as a senator. dan, why would you look at this record and say it's decidedly mixed for somebody who want somebody in there who wants nothing but always on the side of whatever israel wants the united states to do, he certainly is not a full fledged opponent of israel,
was not granted pay -- steve harrison says an hour twitter page -- the national journal has a piece available online focusing on at this and other issues that the president will be facing in his second term. the headline -- seven democratic senators in conservative states facing tough reelection bids in 2014 said that the president has already had some unpleasant stumbling blocks within his own party. and gun control, the white house is calculating that it will be exceedingly difficult to pass broad measures. that is according to the new york times. rockefeller announced his retirement on friday, making his seat vulnerable for the first time since 1959. this story is available at nationaljournal.com. emery joins us from michigan, the independent line. host: good morning. i just wanted to know, how does the american people think it is totally obama's galt we are in debt? we had things going on such as the war that caused so much money. that -- that cost so much money. we have jets, we have so much put out to protect us. how could people be so upset, wondering if obama will be able to go throug
we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of iran. hagel ruled out a military strike would be unreasonable, it would be foolish to do that. something that the obama administration despite fact i think they have taken a rather accommodating and patien
nebraska senator bob kerrey and "the atlantic's" steve clemons. senator, it's always an honor to speak with you. the president today said chuck hagel is an american patriot when he announced the nomination of the former senator from your state to head the pentagon. let's take a listen. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. to this day he bears the scars and shrapnel for battles he fought in our name. we see a decorated combat veteran of character and strength. they see one of their own. most importantly, chuck knows war is not an abstraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> well, senator hagel paid tribute to the men and women in uniform at the announcement today. let's listen to the nominee himself. >> mr. president, i am grateful for this opportunity to serve our country again and especially its men and women in uniform and their families. these are people that give so much to
nominee. u.s. economics editor for "the economist," and senior economics reporter steve leaseman. steve, first to you. what are the markets saying? what is jack lew's reputation in wall street and what do you see coming forward with debt negotiations? >> i think this appointment is being taken advisedly in the sense that it's a kind of wait and see. you know, from my perspective, having covered more or less -- more or less degrees, seven of the past treasury secretaries, jack lew does come to the table with a bio that perhaps has less independence in it than any treasury secretary i can remember. robert rubin, hailing from goldman sachs, salary summers was a renowned economist. paul o'neil from alcoa. there's nothing on lew's resume that suggests any measure of independence. markets want a little bit of independence from their treasury secretary. that said, if jack lew's appointment can, in fact, result in some kind of longer term budget deal affixed to entitlements, tax reform, corporate and individual that i think markets would be happy to give up that independence. the troubling is i
steve schmidt. he is a republican senior strategist from the mccain/palin ticket in '08, msnbc analyst. steve, thank you for being here. good to see you. >> good to see you, rachel. happy new year. >> you too. i know you are a supporter of gun rights, steve. i know you are also a political realist. how do you assess the strength of the effort to try to come up with some form of reform agenda after newtown and after tucson? >> look, i think that the ad that you showed is obviously enormously compelling. it's emotional. the whole country was traumatized by this unspeakable tragedy that took place in newtown, and the tragedies that took place before it. and sadly, the tragedies that are going to take place next. and we don't know where those will be. but the nra is a fearsome political lobby. members particularly in the republican party are terrified of being primaried. this issue is often covered through a partisan prism when it should be looked at through a regional prism. if you talk about democrats in the south, in the mountain west, and places like north dakota, and you saw the new s
steve as well about your deep knowledge of afghanistan and pakistan and the other bordering states. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fight
rock, pay per, scissors. >>steve: what about jacks? >> these are good old-fashioned game. >>brian: we tried to hook the pocket hose on to the hose bib at our house while the water was on. >>steve: exhibit a, ladies and gentlemen, if you're curious, we were able to turn off the hose outside. it took us about four hours. i can hardly wait till -- >> what does that outside shot have to do with it? >>steve: it's all about my christmas present.
't tough enough or they're not viewed as tough enough to handle the pentagon. and steve clemens on "rachel d maddow" made a point that swayed me. >> the democrats that came in many of them that came in with president obama and also part of the concern that americans don't trust democrats to deploy power to be forceful in the world have adopted in many of the institutions they have built in four to five to six years a pentagon hugging strategy of not wanting to reform or cut because of the fear that they will be considered vietnam democrats, anti-military democrats. >> and i think there's some truth to that and i do think in this time where we are going to be looking at cutting the pentagon's budget and scaling back our military to a certain extent, i do think maybe republican would be better positioned to do that and wouldn't be, especially one who's served in the vietnam war wouldn't be subject to the criticisms in the same way a democrat could be. >> part of obama's calculus. >> i will say i would like to see some women picked for some positions. maybe obama needs to borrow some of the

has new details on steve cohen. melissa: you are always controversial. charlie: here is what is interesting about steve cohen. in february, as they see faces a window of redemptions. here is what we know. fac officials are screaming to prevent massive reductions. they are currently contacting and holding one-on-one meetings with investors. they are essentially saying that despite everything, the investigation -- a wells notice has been given. despite all of that, they think that steve cohen we'll be okay. they may get a large fine. they think they are facing charges. they will not be indicted. it will not be a criminal case. keep your money with us. the bottom line is this, you do not know until february. investors essentially hate this type of controversy. some very large investors have put holds on the stocks. i can also tell you, steve cohen and these guys are very aggressive. they are out there trying to get large investors to stay with it. they will come out after the story. these are different one-on-one meetings. this is crisis mode. they think there is a very good lik
plan. steve liesman is here on what you are hearing. how concerned are they? >> there is concern and it takes two forms, sue. two separate fault lines that developed over the fed. you are -- well, that the easy one. the economy meeting what we call the substantial improvement in labor market quicker than others do. they are worried about substantial group in the balance sheet and adjusting it once they stave off inflation. here is what they said about three different folks with the fed. another group a few others say we need considerable policy. that is qe. but they frnt telling us how long it gez on for. this other group called several others that say it is appropriate to slow or stop purchases well before the end of 2013. they site concerns about financial stability or the size of the balance sheet. here is what i understood to be some of those concerns. big balance sheet obviously could lead to inflation. they could be at a loss or make payments to the bank. as interest rates go up, principal gez down. payment to banks would come from interest on reserve in order to sequester
show. now they're partnering up with miss america. >> steve: look like a queen. >> gretchen: be in shape if you're on the run. log on to our after the show show. have a great day, everyone. >> brian: bye. >> steve: see you tomorrow bill: let's get it rolling. fox news alert. dire new warnings about the nation's financial health. set your calendar. a new report shows we have just about a month before our national credit card limit is officially, maed out. despite all the numbers on the screen maxed out. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom.". martha: feels like ground hog day? i do. by partisan policy center they say the u.s. will smack its head on the debt ceiling, as early as february 15th, five weeks or so from now unless congress raises the amount of money we're allowed to borrow. bill: what are the resolutions? stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. good morning, sir. give us the facts on the story. >> deja vu all over again. it is a new cliff. groundhog day all over again. this is debt ceiling cliff and approaching much faster
shows. joining us is the president of strategies and steve hayes are, for a fair and balanced debate. john rockerts pointed out, there are no fewer than 10 bills under consideration in the house of representatives right now to oppose some sort of new gun control from limiting the size of clips to resurrecting the assault ban. a working group led by vice-president biden is proposing these. let's look at what the washington post rer reports, a working group led by vice-president biden is considering measures that would require universal background checks for firearms buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks and stricter penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors. would that help? >> some of them will. i think some of them won't. i think the fact of the matter is -- let me state clearly where i am coming from, someone who lived in a home with a man who should not have guns and lived through the incident of someone trying to kill somebody and married to a former nra board member. so vicome to this f
of virgin atlantic. he's going to assume that job as of february 1st. current ceo steve ridgeway is retiring after 11 years on the job. >> let's welcome our two guest hosts who will be with us for the next two hours. first up we have senator ron johnson who is a member of the commerce and budget committees. also john allison, former bb&t ceo, also president of cato. welcome to the both of you. we have a lot to discuss with you. first we want to get to some of the things we're going to be talking about over the next two hours. guys, we have you here because we have some serious issues. things that are facing our nation and i know you both have some very serious thoughts about them. >> true. >> senator, you brought some cups that i think lay out some of your concerns. >> listen, what i like to talk about, obviously, is how do you start decreasing the level of uncertainty, bring certainly back to this economy, you know, restore confidence so we can get our economy growing again which is the primary, that's the best way to solving our fiscal situation. i think the other problem we've got to solv
and steve moore. steve, let's go to you first. based on our conversations this week, you like this deal a little bit more than i do. why don't you make the west case for doing it for the deal? >> this was for republicans eat your spinach moment. i don't see any other alternative to what happened. look, i think this is rampant deal for so many reasons. i think it's for the economy, my point is that i don't think republicans have much choice. you talk to john boehner and for mitch mcconnell the president would not budge one inch on cutting spending. he had no interests in doing that. the republicans believe, i think they were probably right, they had gone into 2013 without this tax issue resolved, they would be pummeled day after day. i hate the deal but i think it was the least
with iran. steve hayes in the weekly standard wrote nothing something in his blog this week, which i will put on the screen. >> chuck hagel said nothing as far off the table but one that believe us in the prospects for negotiation. we have been ready to negotiate under the right set of circumstances with iran for the last several years with our friends and allies so, force is the table but i'm glad we have people like the president and like chuck hagel who will be very careful when you start throwing around the terms -- >> he says it's not feasible. do you agree it is not feasible. >> what is the not feasible? >> military option? >>> military option is always feasible, you tell me what the option is. are we going to blow up tehran or go after facilities that might be well pro-toerktd hidden? and i think bob gates, the previous secretary of defense, who pointed out the difficulty of striking these places is a real one. so any military option is feasible in terms of dropping bombs but what is the result of that military attack? with respect to the revolutionary guard, he has reasons fo
public school teachers. >>> congressman steve palazzo wanted aid when his district was ravaged by hurricane katrina, yet voted down sandy aid. he took a hypocritical tour of sandy damage today. >>> congress has hit a new low. >> say ah! >> ah. >> say ah! >> ah. >> even root canals are more popular. bob shrum and howard fineman are here to assess the damages. on the heels of the horrific massacre in newtown, connecticut, something needs to change. here is one reason why. two years ago today, a gunman opened fire in tucson, arizona, in a parking lot. he shot 19 people, including congresswoman gabrielle giffords. with a gun carries 33 rounds and a magazine of ammunition. six people died, including one child. the mother of that child now has a strong message for our elected leaders in washington. >> 20 heartbroken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to di
. an anthropologist searching for answers and now cycling back here to share the incredible experiences. >>> i'm steve kornacki, finding out who gave me the flu. really. it's a sick new app. >>> all that plus what kids, kesha and congress have common. we're all about making connections here on "the cycle." all right. it's just 13 days to the inauguration and if you thought president obama's first term was polarizing, just wait for the second. for instance, his first term was polarizing despite obama's efforts. his second could be polarizing because of them. need proof? already the president's putting up his dukes nominating chuck hagel to run the pentagon. he slammed the door on debt ceiling negotiations demanding congress raise it without drama and says he's ready to be tough on gun control but remember the president doesn't have to worry about re-election ever again. so expect his second term agenda to look a lot like this. full of overtures to the base which criticized him over the last four years for caving to republicans. to help decipher what to expect in the next four years, we start with nbc's
from frostburg, maryland. independent line. caller: good morning, steve. i had a daughter that was murder ed and these people out there in newtown, connecticut -- my daughter was 5 years old. those parents will never be the same again. when the founders wrote the constitution for the second amendment they didn't have 50 caliber ak-47's and these other high assault rifles that were designed specifically to kill people. in our country we have too many sick people. my government continues to bow down to people like the n.r.a. and we need prudent, wise people making rules in our country now and quit butting down -- quit bowing down to these groups that are primarily in it for money. we have too many dying and too much sickness in the country. it needs to stop. somebody has to stand up and say enough is enough and use wisdom with the power they have in washington. host: thank you. are you still with us. caller: yes. host: what happened in your situati situation? 1979er: she was murdered in by a crazy person, another powe of america's crazy people. host: where was she killed? ca
flood of identity theft. steve brown with that controversy live from chicago. steve. >> reporter: jon, the bipartisan group of lawmakers who are pushing this legislation have been pushing safety and savings. that if the estimated quarter million unlicensed, undocumented drivers in the state of illinois were to get licenses, pass a driver's test they may are more likely to buy insurance and therefore the highways would be safer and insurance premiums would go down. for the folks in the his ace community in the state of illinois, a growing group for sure it would remove one of the potential consequences of unlicensed driving. >> have you to be extra careful, right? any kind of violation doesn't lead just to a ticket u know, it leads to an arrest and possible deportation. >> reporter: the state senate has already approved this measure. the state house we are told will vote today. the expectation is that it will pass. democratic governor pat quinn will sign it into law. there have been voices of objection including one state senate democrat voting no on the measure saying it's the cart be
, forced the health care system to do business, these numbers are real. steve's right. you were sold a bill of goods. these numbers are real. the health insurance companies are against the wall. they must pass on the cost. bill: what does it do to uncertainty for business plans, stephen moore? >> this is one of the biggest problems of all, bill. i saw a rasmussen poll a couple weeks ago, showed something like 75 to 80% of small businesses don't understand this bill. they don't understand how it works. they're completely confused how the health care system is going to affect their bottom line. one of the things you have to remember, all of these popular features about the bill, 26-year-olds can get insurance under their parents health care system, free birth control, all of these other kinds of things, those actually, somebody has to pay for that, bill, right? there is no free lunch here. that is what we're seeing in the higher premium costs. what i think it will mean, people will lose their health insurance. they will not gain it. bill: i hope you're wrong about that. matt, i will of about
in one by representative steve stockman outside of houston that would remove the gun free zones that have been so much like a magnet to invite mass murderers into zones where they know nobody else will be able to shoot back. and that i think is where the debate is likely to shift. are we really better off when we say no defense is a good defense? >> chris: i want to put up an ad that gun control advocates have started running against new democratic senator heidi hei dcamp of north dakota when she said some of the president's ideas about gun control are extreme. will that work. can ms. tanden and their allies and they have suggested they can drive a wedge between people like you, the heads of the nra and some of their members who may not be as hardline as you guys are on gun controls? >> i think the senator from north dakota is reflecting the views of the people that sent her to washington. so i don't think there is much room to drive any wedge. i think she is representing them rather faithfully and i think it is noteworthy that a democrat who would be under a lot of pressure within their
the political fight ahead for the former senator dubbed man without a party. >>> i'm steve kornacki. did you hear they're adding a new game at the 0 bush administration picks? can kicking. >>> i'm crystal ball. we need to build an asteroid deflection system. i'm going somewhere with this. >>> live wrong. lance armstrong may come clean but what's that got to do with jimmy swaggart? this is "the cycle." >>> president obama's second term defense team is taking shape as long as the senate confirms his picks. my friends, the odds right now are in the president's favor. today, the president formally nominated a republican former senator chuck hagel from nebraska as the new pentagon chief. talking about the for weeks. hagel backed both the afghan and iraq wars. hagel's also a vietnam war vet with two purple hearts and would be the nation's first pentagon chief to have seen combat as an enlisted soldier. he's come under fire for a gay slur of 15 years ago and he's apologized for. even though many may think those criticisms of iraq and afghanistan is invalid. john brennan earned the stripes at the ci

by griffin and others, steve clemens who's notable in washington on foreign policy has argued that hagel is progay and very committed to these issues. this will, again, wash out in the discussions. likely this is going to be a touchstone in the near term. but hopefully as the commentary goes forward, people will see that chuck hagel is the right man for the job. >> we talked about the democrats who have some concerns of their own. there's the new political article that cites a senate democratic official as saying this. quote, i don't think dems just fall in line. ultimately he may be confirmed. at this stage his fate is totally up in the air. he will really have to work hard to overcome some of his previous statements and positions. if you take us inside that confirmation room, for most americans who may not know chuck hagel very well, who's the person they're going to see? what will be his demeanor when he's answering some of these tough questions? >> they're going to see an american hero. someone who won two purple hearts. an enlisted man in vietnam. a man who has shrapnel still in his
to support him as defense secretary. >> leak steve said, i'm also looking forward to the confirmation process. that will help us get a much better sense of where chuck hagel's values are, where he's willing to put his shoulder behind the wheel. and it's really encouraging to hear that he's made promises around open service for lgbt service members, around women's issues. the problem is, we just haven't seen any evidence of that. so while steve and a lot of the others can say, i've talked to hagel. he's indicated that support, he shook my hand. he's a nice guy. that's great. i actually want to see real concrete promises from him that will not only is he going to enforce the law as it stands, but actually take it further and make sure that the u.s. armed services is a place of inclusion, is a place of equality, is a place of fairness. and the aim for civil service that he will also manage as part of it his responsibilities as secretary of defense. so i'm just looking for much more concrete evidence of that support. >> heather kroen, thank you very much for joining us. stephen clemens, thanks fo
who knows chuck hagel rather well. steve clemens. thank you for coming in. give us the single best reason why you support this nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary. >> i think that a defense secretary in this age needs to revision the pentagon and figure out how you going to create security deliverables for the united states and the world, in a time of budget austerity. and i think that he understands the roles and missions of the pentagon. i think he understands and has the stature and command competency to wrestle with the generals and admirals which he's going to need to do. i think he knows the ins and outs of congress. so i think in this time that national security is really at a vital turng point and it is very, very important at the end of the day that the united states reinvents its leverage in the world and not send the signal that it is diminishing and pulling out of many of its vital interests. i think hagel will be able to walk that very fine and complicated line. >> one criticism he's been getting is that he really doesn't have the experience in managing a

[laughter] >> i wanted to address troy what you said about the 2009 -- >> how bad was it? >> policy measures here. just outdated the law passed in 2010 mandated background checks of owners with dispensaries so the owners now are completely felony free and legitimate. that leads into my question that i'll pose about the process, and the obama administration has not attempted to meet with the drafters of the initiative or really any stake holders in colorado or washington and wondering whether that's an appropriate way to determine or settle the state, federal conflict. >> it's been busy lately. let's -- any others here? the gentleman here. make them quick if you don't mind. >> sure. neil franklin, director of law enforcement against prohibition. hear about leadership, again, steve mentioned leadership. special markets, this is the impotent congress, no leadership there. is this an
